Thanks again for the follow-up--I tried to follow the PPCFAQ on how to set
up an xorg.conf file . . . so I got the console generated file set up, but
so far it hasn't made a difference.  Seems like what isn't mentioned in the
FAQ is that "X" has to be stopped before an xorg.conf file can be
generated???  Once I "stopped lightdm" I was able to make the file on the
terminal . . . but so far it hasn't solved the jagged color issues, the
suspend, or empty window issues.

I'm away from that iBook now, but perhaps I'll look at what the "linux on
mac" offerings have that are different, and try to squeeze that into the
file.  It probably has to do with screen "refresh rates" or Hrz/vert.  Or
I'll try to duckduckgo-ogle a few things and see what turns up . . . good
to know that it isn't necessary to reboot to test out the file . . . .

F/ e.e.p.
